Haven't had much time to come on, but I had to stop in for some advice. I have 3 large engine driven compressors right now; one of them I mounted onto a trailer so I can pull it around with a GT, one is for parts, and the other is mounted in my Dad's old service truck he used for the tire business. The one that is in the truck just sits, and I do not really need it anyway, so I think I am going to sell it.

 

The truck is not at my house, so I can not run out and take more pictures for you guys right now. This is the only one I have.

I do have a picture of the ID plate on the tank that I took a while ago.

I believe it is an '05, it is a champion brand, not sure of the model, electric start/ pull start, runs great, no leaks, tank drained regularly so no rot inside, 200 psi, 30 gallon, 11 HP Honda engine, and I am not sure of the exact CFM, but it never had a problem keeping up with 1" air guns, airing tires, sandblasters, or anything else while running on a 1/2" hose.

 

What do you guys think it would be worth? I will not be selling it with any tools or hose.

11HP??  That's a lot of air for a 30 gallon tank!  Must have powered some serious air tools like a jack-hammer!  There is some rot in the tank even if the thing was drained unless the tank is SS.  But not a lot as it is only 5 years old.  A new one is worth $2 K all day long so your's should be anywhere from $600 - $1400 depending on the hours on the engine/pump..  Hard to judge from a picture though..  A quick touch-up on the tank would help the selling price IMO

The used C market is tuff. Most people's first or second purchase is something too small or a piece of junk. My guess on yours would be no where what it's worth maybe $400.- $500. That is a lot of engine for a 30 gallon tank. Hope you do well with it

The smaller used ones I see on craigslist go for 200-400 so I would say its safe to assume 400-750 used. What make and model truck is your dads old work truck

The truck is a 1998 F450 Super Duty with a 7.3 under the hood.

Thanks guys, I was thinking $500. The guy who's house it is sitting at now wants to buy it from me, and I feel bad that is has sat there for so long and I want to give him a good deal because of it.
